I was something of a weather buff when I was a kid. I could name you off a list of tv weather forecasters of my youth. Anyone know Fritz Coleman? He was my guy (nbc 4 la). My dad bought me a barometer and some other gadgets to stay aprised of the changing weather. Funny how much I was into it, being that I grew up in Southern California, the place where weather never happens.
To this day I still look forward to the Old Farmers Almanac. My parents would get me this every year so I would be on top of the long term forecast.... Well, I have mine this year, and I highly recommend you picking up your copy!
